Azienda Agricola G.D. Vajra

Italy, Piedmont

The winery of G.D. Vajra was initially established in 1972, although the Vajra family dates back more than two centuries in the Barolo region. Aldo and his wife Milena own the vineyards, mainly all situated in Barolo. His winemaking techniques are quite traditional, using longer maceration times and primarily Slavonian casks for ageing. However he would not describe his style as tradtional, but forward thinking and happy to evolve depending on the vintage. As the vineyards are situated 400m above sea level, the grapes ripen later than in other areas, resulting in wonderfully fresh wines with balanced acidity.
